How to use this blog
We have digitised cassette tapes of previous GCSE Spanish Speaking Exams and put them on this blog for you to listen to. Wherever possible we have shared the candidates eventual grade for the Speaking Exam only and points awarded.
Listening to the conversations on this blog should give you some idea of the standard of exam performances and the kind of things that you should be saying during the oral. Please be patient; these are authentic exams and so there are mistakes, pauses and occasionally some audio interference on them.
To listen to a conversation; click the topic or grade standard that you want to see. That will show only the recordings that match your criteria. Choose a recording, click the play button and listen!
Role plays are in the process of being added to the blog. As you probably know, there are 3 categories of role-plays in the speaking exams, A B and C role-plays. These are categorised in the same way as the conversation files; click on either All role-plays or B or C role-plays to see a full list of the role-plays in that category. The cards that are shown with each recording are the same cards that were given to the candidate before the exam. Read these as you listen so you can follow the conversation.
